Three months after the Supreme Court’s landmark decision on health reform, Obamacare opponents want another bite at the apple.The court opened its term Monday by asking the federal government for its advice on a new constitutional challenge to the health care law, according to the SCOTUS Blog.
The targets are the individual and employer health insurance mandates, both of which the Supreme Court upheld in its June ruling on the Affordable Care Act.
Virginia’s Liberty University, a religious institution, petitioned for its case against the two health law conditions to be reheard after the Fourth Circuit refused to weigh in on its challenge, according to the Blog.
In effect, the university is asking the Supreme Court to overrule the Fourth Circuit court’s decision to simply dismiss the case due to a lack of jurisdiction.
It is still unclear whether or not the court will hear the case, but according to its rules, Liberty would need to convince the court that things have changed substantially since the Fourth Circuit’s decision.
Liberty University argues the high court’s June decision qualifies as such a change.
